I get a great sense of satisfaction when I bring an idea to fruition. Realizing an idea brings me energy and I get caught up in and engrossed by executing it. When it works, it's euphoric!
I derive ideas for my paintings from many places, concepts and experiences. Some I paint because they're a challenge, some from conceptual ideas and some to capture something beautiful.
Over the last few years, I've been exploring pop art and modern commercialism. I admire and draw inspiration from clever and interesting ideas that were mainstream and are still relevant. Aesthetically beautiful, interesting and highly functional designs like Frank Lloyd Wright's or clever, layered and fun works like Bugs Bunny are genius.
These works are clever, appealing, interesting and fun and they stand the test of time. That is what I aim for.
